Here is an excerpt from Kieron Gillen's article, First-Person Shooter BioShock Owes More to Ayn Rand Than Doom.

From the moment you arrive, you're plunged headfirst into an objectivist social experiment. Banners proclaim ALTRUISM IS THE SOURCE OF ALL EVIL, and perky advertisements preach the wonders of genetic modification. (Wired Magazine, issue 15.09, 08/21/07.)

[Editor's comment: It could be case that the game "owes more to Ayn Rand than Doom," but the question is if Ken Levine is a real supporter of Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism.]

    Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

    Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

    Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

    Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

    Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at

    Best wishes,
